WHERE THE PARTY'S AT -- Shocker, we hit 3 home runs and won easily. Like it or not, this is how you win games in today’s baseball world. Hitting singles, taking walks, having dudes loiter around on the bases….that’s not how it’s done
Earth Day is tomorrow. We thought it would be a good thing to highlight some places in the region where humankinds footprint has been mostly a kind and soft one. Using google satellite, we came up with these green jewels.... Earth Day is tomorrow.&am
The bad news for the Giants since their impressive 2-0 start after the first couple of games in LA is that they've gone just 3-6 over their last nine. On a positive note, the losses haven't been bad at all, and most of them have been 1-run ballgames.
Brandon Belt will gladly take Saturday's second-inning home run against the Angels. Belt's drive to right-center field reached the top of the wall just as Angels center fielder Mike Trout arrived. Trout appeared to time his jump perfectly, but the ba
Beautiful, aren't they?  Not so much the Giants home opener.  The Seattle Mariners scored 4 runs before Ty Blach and the Giants managed so much as an out.  The M's loaded the bases on an infield single, a bunt single and a

It's been a bit of a frustrating start for the Giants. Before Ty Blach was hammered for 10 hits and 6 earned runs in Tuesday's home opener, they had been getting solid starting pitching but the offense was not there. On Tuesday vs. Seattle, the start

If you would have told me that the Giants would have only scored 2 runs total in the first two ballgames of the season vs. the Dodgers, I would have for surely predicted an 0-2 start. However, 2 games into the 2018 season, and the Giants have a lot t
